Hanna Stamps September Release Party Challenge #1

The challenge was to use Fall colors. Easy enough...especially since I've been wanting to use some more of my Boom-Di-Ada paper. Plus, when its rainy and cold out, isn't it fun to just curl up with a blanket and a good book?!?

And someone will win the Jump for Joy set. The deadline is Monday 5pm Eastern Time. ETA: You have to upload your card to the Hanna Stamps Forum on Split Coast...they're the ones giving away the stamps. :)

Paper: CTMH Boom-di-ada
Stamps: Bookworm Hanna
Copic Markers, CTMH Buttons, Prima Flowers, Edge Distressing

Many have complimented on my coloring and I greatly appreciate it! I told Brent that since I got my Copics, my goal was to become a better colorer. I sound like a 5 year old, huh? But seriously, I read Marianne's blog every day. I try to take something she's talked about and apply it to my coloring. Thats why I shadow everything now, lol. But just the little things too, like using the blender pen and how to match the tones of colors. She's coming back to Seattle in November to do Copic Certification...I might try to get a day off work and go. :)

I went to Target and I didn't find my shirt. Long sleeves aren't in yet I guess. I'll just have to try again right before I leave on my trip. But I did get a few projects done. They had a lot picture frames on clearance...I should of bought more. I might go back and buy a bunch more for our up coming Gala pictures. Have a great Monday everyone...its back to work for me!
